What does that have to do with anything? The reality is that he was a really hot prospect when the Seahawks brought him on so they didn't wait around to find a GM to run the team they brought him in.
Same with Andy Reid.
I like Rex (I think he'll do much better at his next coaching gig) but he's not a hot commodity. The issues that the organization had with the cap, media leaks, Tebow, players talking **** about other players to the media, etc - these are all things that suggest leadership is needed. And in a lot of organizations that means a full-fledged GM who is there to run all football operations.
